Prizes galore at Zim Strongest Man

HARARE - Organisers of the second edition of the Zimbabwe’s Strongest Man Challenge are pleased with the large bounty of prizes up for grabs at the competition.

The event will be held at Harare Sports Club rugby field section with both male and female participants battling to come tops in different physical challenges.

The top price is $1 000 plus two nights’ stay for two at the Nyanga Montclair hotel while second place carries $500 and two nights for two at the same hotel.

Third place carries $250 and hampers from Pepsi and Extreme Supplements.

Event organiser Henry Bindu said: “I’m passionate about health and fitness and the realisation that such an event which is on the international sporting calendar the world-over was lacking here in Zimbabwe was how this challenge all started last year.

“This is going to be a family event with challenges for everyone men, women and children so we encourage people to come in numbers. We are also going to have at least a Mazda 3 light vehicle for the women challenge.”

The organisers have received a one-tonne truck, a bus and a double cab bakkie from Tata International which will be used in the pulling competition.

“We will have events that will be judged in relation to weight, time and distance. We will have the usual squats; dead lift as well as tyre flips weighing 260kg over a distance of about 20 feet which is a time-based competition,” said Bindu.

“The event has also managed to attract participants from as far as Botswana and we are pleased to say that they are already in the country as we speak in preparation for the show.

“The ZRP has also confirmed a total of 10 participants who have since been given the green light from various provinces in the country to partake in the challenge.”

Munyaradzi Runganga, who is a fitness fanatic at Raylton Sports Club Gym, was the overall winner of the competition known as Harare’s Strongest Man last year before its rebranding.
